Brian, it is a G-50 45. When I first bought it , it came with win 8. I did not like it and put it away until win 10 came out.

Windows version: Windows 10Ver1909 (64-bit) build 18363.693

What is your model?  It's most likely a tweak to BIOS/UEFI, which would require sighted assistance since no screen reader will run prior to an OS being loaded, and BIOS/UEFI is way ahead of the OS loading in any boot sequence.

In which case the default presumption is that what you are seeking to change is controlled in BIOS/UEFI.  There are a few makers that have utilities that run under Windows that can tweak smart keys/action keys/whatever they call them keys so that the function keys go back to being regular function keys, but most control the on/off state of that under BIOS/UEFI.

You'll have to go into the bios to change the behavior of the function keys. I have a Lenovo laptop and the keys behave the same way. Also, the thing with Chrome where you have to press f5 or NVDA plus f5 . . . that is an issue with Chrome, it's been fixed in the beta. There should be a Chrome update on March 17, in which this issue will be resolved.

Can someone point me in the right direction in Lenovo Advantage where I can make changes to FF-1 through F-12? Using Google, I now have to use the FN key plus F-5 just to refresh a page. Same trying to hear the time, FN key plus NVDA key plus F-10. This Lenovo Advantage don't seem vary accessible to me. thanks

Data science is basically converting structured or unstructured data in to insight, understanding and knowledge using scientific methods, processes and algorithms.

R is free open source language used as statistical and visualization software. It can deal with structured (organised) and semi-structured (semi-organised) data.

To learn R for data science we covered all aspects as follows:

✤ Introduction
✤ Data-Types in R
✤ Variables in R
✤ Operators in R
✤ Conditional Statements
✤ Loop statements
✤ Loop Control Statements
✤ R Script
✤ R Functions
✤ Custom Function

⁎ Matrix
⁎ Arrays
⁎ Factors
⁎ Data Frames
⁎ List
✤ Import/Export Data – Assign values to data structure
✤ Data Manipulation/Transformation
✤ Apply function of Base R
✤ dplyr Package

For Python we covered following -
✤Environment setup and Essentials of Python
✽Introduction and Environment Setup
✽Variable assignment in Python
✽Data Types in Python
✽Data Structure: Tuple
✽Data Structure: List
✽Data Structure: Dictionary (Dict)
✽Data Structure: Set
✽Basic Operator: in
✽Basic Operator: + (plus)
✽Basic Operator: * (multiply)
✽Functions
✽Built-in Sequence Function in Python
✽Control Flow Statements: if, elif, else
✽Control Flow Statements: for Loops
✽Control Flow Statements: while Loops
✽Exception Handling

Statistics is crucial part to start learning in in this field.
Terms used in statistics is very strange and hard to understand for beginners, so we tried our best to explain these terms in very easy language for Novice, Intermediate or Advanced level guys in Data Science, Machine Learning, AI field.
Here we covered so many terms used in statistics like -
✽ Hypotheses
✽ Quantitative methods
✽ Qualitative methods
✽ Independent and Dependent variables
✽ Predictor and Outcome variables
✽ Categorical variables
✽ Binary variable
✽ Nominal variable
✽ Ordinal variable
✽ Continuous variable
✽ Interval variable
✽ Ratio variable
✽ Discrete variable
✽ Confounding variables
✽ Measurement error
✽ Validity and Reliability
✽ Two methods of data collection
✽ Types of variation
✽ Unsystematic variation
✽ Systematic variation
✽ Frequency distribution
✽ The Mean
✽ The Median
✽ The Mode
✽ Dispersion in distribution of Data
✽ Range
✽ Interquartile range
✽ Quartiles
✽ Probability
✽ Standard deviation

Most important advantage of this app that complete material except sample project is available offline, sample project part is online because we keep adding it web based regular.https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.androidassist.datascienceusingr.programminglanguage

Hi 😀

Thank you. As it turns out I’ve discovered that pressing enter on the body of the slide allows me to edit it. Working with the other students, we were able to figure out the formatting and everything.

But thank you for your response. 😀

having trouble editing google slides with NVDA

molly the blind tech lover
 

Hey guys, Molly here.

Does anyone by any chance have  experience editing a presentation in Google slides with NVDA? I have a group project due in a week and we are required to make a slide show presentation using google slides. I was able to   start editing the slide. When I open the document in google drive, NVDA is in focus mode. I can use the up and down arrows, and NVDA says slide 1, slide 2, etc. Using the tab key,  NVDA says title, then hitting tab again it says body. The trouble I am having is trying to edit the text I’ve typed into the    body of the slide. I created the title of the slide and started editing the body. Having exited the document, I came back to do some more work. After navigating to the body of the slide I previously edited, it seems that using the up, down, left and right arrows don’t allow me  to read and edit  the text I’ve typed.  It seems that using the arrow keys moves the slide.  I have screen reader support enabled in google docs, etc. Using NVDA 2019.3.1 and Google Chrome.

 This is really hard to explain and I have very limited experience with google slides, docs, etc. Any advice will be most appreciated.

Thank you

Kind regards

 

Molly
